    Have you Techo's seen this?

    From the New Zealand Herald website this morning

    POINT AND SHOOT: If you're into hunting but not a very good shot then the TrackingPoint smart rifle may appeal: you point and it locks a laser on the target. You pull the trigger, but it doesn't fire until the weapon has been pointed in exactly the right place, taking into account dozens of variables, including wind, shake and distance to the target. The rifle has a built-in laser range finder, a heads-up display, a ballistics computer and a Wi-Fi transmitter that streams live video and audio to a nearby iPad. The recorded video can be shared online so you can show your friends what a good shot the rifle is. The scope can be passworded protected to prevent unauthorised users from accessing the tracking features. The targets, whatever or whoever they are, don't stand a chance
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    was up on here a while back.

    not sure you'd be lugging the system with you out in the bush
    NOBODY IS PERFECT - but if you're from Yorkshire you're pretty close
    The above was written slowly, for those of us who can't read quickly.

    The thing weighs like ten kilos, and their pitch for "humane long range killing no matter your skill level" kinda fell a bit flat when three of the kills in the original demo video were long-distance gut-shots…

    Interesting too that they think they have a shot at military and law enforcement applications. LE particularly, the whole idea is a huge liability nightmare. One bad software bug and you've got that scene early in Robocop.
